Government Documents on International Trade

 

International trade affects our lives every day when we buy goods and services imported from other countries or when goods and services produced by companies in our community are exported to other countries. Trends and developments in international trade affect the prices we pay for various goods and services as well as local, state, national, foreign, and international economic conditions. Governments publish tremendous amounts of statistics and analysis on international trade and many government agencies produce international trade information.

Many of these government publications can be found in Purdue Libraries with the HSSE and Parrish Libraries having most of these. Examples of Library Catalog subject headings you can use to locate government documents on international trade within Purdue Libraries include:

Favored Nation Clause United States
Free Trade United States
